EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Shemar Moore’s Lawsuit
Moore, 41, — who played hunky Malcolm Winters on The Young And The Restless — filed his suit against Phillip Randall and Florence Rosenthal at Los Angeles Superior Court.
The actor, who is being represented by Lindsay Lohan’s attorney Shawn Holley, stated that he was struck from behind while he was riding his bike on August 1, 2009, on Sepulveda Boulevard.

In court papers, Moore claims that Randall failed to yield for him while driving the car that was owned by Rosenthal.
The former male model was taken to Sherman Oaks Hospital suffering from numerous injuries which resulted in substantial hospital and medical bills.
In addition, he claims that he suffered subsequent loss of earnings and incurred numerous aftercare costs too because of the accident.
